On tap at brewery. Fairly gentle hop aroma on a cloudy orange/golden pour. Skin of head leads into big hop bite. Sharp, short, but potent. Makes my cheeks flush. Tasty, but pungent aroma enough to make this a sipper.

Bottle from bleeng.
Pours a decent cheddar orange with an aroma of slight pine sap immersed in grapefruit juice. Flavor is pine grapefruit and citrus rind. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Nice impy IPA. Grassy-green hops. Lots of fruit as well. And some pine in the back. Soft malts offer caramel, bread dough and bread. White bread crust mostly. Very drinkable, especially for 8 percent. Enjoyed it.

Terminus (3487) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2010
tap a few times and a few bottles as well-composite rating over the past few months. copper/orange hue with a nice froathy white head. floral, citrus, tropical nose-in the bottles its a bit more piney i noticed. i had it once on tap at the santa fe location and it was way more floral. Then, this sample i had at the brewpub was a bit more harsh/dirty hops. the tap version i had at the brewery seemed a bit off from the samples i have had before-the finish didnt come together very well-really maltless and had lack of depth whereas the balance was a bit better on the bottle and the tap from santa fe back around new years. A decent DIPA that seems to change from place to place. However, for NM, this is the best we have!

Huhzubendah (3327) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer is light orange hued and fairly hazy. The white head is about a finger’s width, leaving some random traces of lacing upon the glass. The beer is hop forward, with a touch of alcohol. The beer smells stronger than the Marble IPA, with a bit less tropical fruit and citrus presence. This DIPA has more or a malt and hop balance, as opposed to the single IPA, which is more focused on the hop character. Medium bodied with some lingering bitterness in the finish. Overall, I preferred the Marble IPA to this. That said, this was a decent beer and I would have it again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-15-2011

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
from the cask at papago 7/28/10. clear. worn penny - rich coppery color with a soft airy cask head. it smells like sunshine would!... resinous, orange, grapefruit, wood, flowers and caramel. the palate is a touch sweeter than i would ideally like but it is incredibly hoppy... citrus, dank, wood, toasty grain, caramel and a little ashiness on the finish. the body is a bit too rich and slick for me toward the bottom of the glass but in small doses or with regular carbonation i am sure this is quite good. 8/3/7/3/15/3.6

drjay44 (3246) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body......nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, treacle, floral honey tones....taste is heavy resin, pine, pineapple, toffee/caramel, floral honey tones, finishing with a lingering slightly sweet pine bitterness....mouth feel medium to thick, slightly sticky, alcohol adds light warmth, carbonation creates a thick foamy coating. This is a quite typical American style I/DIPA. Hop heavy with all the aroma and flavor nuances of that backbone, with just enough malt to keep the hops under a bit of control. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

jake65 (3236) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle: Copper/orange pour is hazy with a creamy sand colored head. Lots of sticky lacing. Nose is somewhat muted, at least initially. As it warms piney and tropical fruit notes take over. Some caramel too. At frist the flavor is soft for a DIPA; caramel, piney, and tropical fruits. More pine resin... reminds me of Blue spruce. Seems like the hops may have faded a bit, I’d really like to try this again fresh, but it has a good balance of flavor overall.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle via trade with brokephibroke. Hazy medium orange body, thin clumping cream head with significant lacing. Nose of floral and citrusy hops, caky yeast, breast malts, and hints of alcohol. Dense body, lots of citrus and pine with robust bitterness and a yeasty, toasty body with hints of alcohol. Slightly oxidized. Nice.
